For every movie that makes it to the big screen, countless more fall into "Development Hell," never to see the light of day. What would the Batman franchise look like today if Warner Bros. had decided to hand the keys to the Bat-mobile to Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) instead of Christopher Nolan? Would we have had to wait decades for Ridley Scott to return to sci-fi with Prometheus if his "Alien on a train" movie, The Train, had left the station back in the late-'80s?
And can you imagine what it would have been like to have The Beatles play the four Hobbits journeying to Mount Doom in an adaptation of The Lord of the Rings directed by John Boorman (Excalibur)? These are but a few of the movies-that-never-were documented in David Hughes’ new book, Tales from Development Hell: The Greatest Movies Never Made?, from Titan Books. Sit back, grab a handful of popcorn, and prepare to have your mind blown as we journey to Development Hell.
